Over the past year I have been trying so very hard to cut back on our intake of stuff. And to let go of things we no longer need. That was my goal for the year- to simplify. I'm doing a pretty good job. During the month of October I sold almost 50 items on eBay and made an easy 350.00. Just on things we had in the house. Mostly stuff from the boys when they were younger. I have finally accepted the fact that we are good with 2. Although if more were to bless this house that would be great and if that time ever came we could easily find the things we need, through friends and thrifting.
But I digress.
Anyways I recently was at a friends house and there was NO clutter. Nothing. The house looked so fresh and clean. The essentials were there. I loved the way it may me feel. I know we have way too much stuff and am going to try even harder to clear out. The boys are swimming in toys that they only use once a week/month. It won't be easy but I would like to try and cut our stuff in half. I want to enjoy even more of my time with the boys and not be constantly picking up things or tripping up over them. I would rather be experiencing life than worrying where things need to go.
I'll keep on plugging away and hopefully we will get there someday soon.
